Doorway to Barony Castle
Doorway to Barony Castle
This is the doorway to Barony castle now a hotel with part serving as the Scottish Ambulance College where students do a 14 week course. I hope that the injunction over the entrance refers to the motto of the original owners, the Murray family, and NOT to the Ambulance College! The building is an old tower house dating from the early 16th century and reputed to be haunted by Muckle Mou'd Meg, an ancestor of Sir Walter Scott and 'Auld Reekie', the last Murray owner, where a strong smell of cigars is reported in one of the rooms.
